ilani Parking Garage
Construction Cost: $50,000,000+
Start Date: 6/1/2019 Completion Date: 11/1/2020
Ridgefield In 2017, ilani opened its doors to the community. After completing Cowlitz Crossing Fuel and Convenience Store in 2019, ilani started construction on a more than 2600-space parking garage. The new $50+ million project will allow for an easy and convenient way to enter ilani, ease congestion on Cowlitz Way and improve safety throughout the reservation. The garage will include speed ramps to give drivers direct access to all levels, as well as state-of-the-art technology that will make finding an available parking spot or your car quicker than ever. It will also feature a large rooftop section that was structurally enhanced to support outdoor events. To allow for access to and from Cowlitz Way, numerous improvements were made to the roadway such as a lane expansion and an auxiliary access road. The ilani parking garage is slated to open in the fall of 2020.

The Vancouver Clinic Columbia Palisades
Construction Cost: $18,500,000
Start Date: 9/24/2019 Completion Date: 10/29/2020
Camas Built with a progressive design-build contract and fully collaborative partnership between the architect, engineers and contractor, The Vancouver Clinic’s new Camas Clinic is a 26,384-square-foot, two-story medical office building. This outpatient clinic will include urgent care, phlebotomy, general radiology, ophthalmology and teamwork spaces. The landscaped parking area includes naturally planted storm water treatment swales. This will be the first project to be completed within the new Columbia Palisades development, where a rock and gravel quarry previously operated for 135 years. Comprising a combination of beautiful exterior finishes with a full height glass curtain wall and welcoming free-standing curved canopy for drive-through drop off, the exterior is only surpassed by the light filled interior highlighted with graphics capturing the Columbia River Gorge. The open stair leads upstairs to ophthalmology featuring optometry display cases, and Primary Care. The waiting areas on both levels open to the view over the Columbia River. The design of the interior provides privacy for patients entering exam rooms and for the care team, open areas for connectivity and support. To address current conditions, one patient room on each floor will be specially designed to provide enhanced safety for care providers and patients.

La Center Middle School
Construction Cost: $36,112,609
Start Date: 5/1/2020 Completion Date: 7/15/2020
La Center The site for the La Center Middle School is located in La Center, along Northeast Lockwood Creek Road, east of East 18th Place. The PBS team provided land use planning, traffic engineering, civil engineering, natural resources and geo-environmental services to support the design of the new 17-acre middle school. The school includes an 80,000-square-foot building, two parking areas, vehicle/bus access, plaza areas, a grass field and frontage improvements. Land use planning services allowed smooth navigation through a conditional use permit which included a public hearing. PBS coordinated closely with the City of La Center and Clark Public Utilities to design a sanitary sewer pump station. The pump station involved analyzing the sewer basin to propose a regional pump station in lieu of a private pump station serving only the school. This new feature allowed the City to serve surrounding neighborhoods and plan for full build-out within the sanitary basin. The natural resources group provided a wetland restoration and mitigation plan, requiring coordination and approval from the Army Corp of Engineers and Washington State Department of Ecology. Due to the pesticides used during the agricultural use of the site, contaminated soils were found on-site requiring the engagement of the geo-environmental group to provide contaminated soil and stormwater management.

Emerald Elementary School
Construction Cost: $30,000,000
Start Date: 6/1/2019 Completion Date: 10/1/2020
Vancouver Emerald Elementary School is one of three new or replacement elementary schools built almost concurrently, funded by a $695 million bond package in 2018 to support Evergreen Public Schools. The design of these elementary schools is based on a design prototype developed by LSW Architects to quickly design a replacement for Crestline Elementary School, which was destroyed by a fire in 2013. The design places the library in a prominent position and includes plenty of space to encourage student interaction. It also separates the gym from common areas so that the gym can be used for community events after hours. The school campus includes outdoor gathering spaces, covered play areas, sports fields, and a parking lot with separate bus drop-off loops for both standard and special education students. These outdoor areas include stormwater facilities and are designed to maximize flow and student safety, and to improve traffic flow on adjacent streets. Construction has progressed throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and the school is on schedule to be open in the fall.

Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School
Construction Cost: $27,782,179
Start Date: 6/1/2019 Completion Date: 1/1/2021
Vancouver Many schools built in the postwar era were designed based on prison floor plans, which often resulted in suboptimal learning environments. When voters passed a $458 million bond measure in 2017, Vancouver Public Schools was able to replace an existing school built in 1971 with a more welcoming and stimulating environment for students, faculty, and the community. The design eschews the traditional institutional central or radial corridor with a 68,000-square-foot two-story “L” shaped building. The design features one wing with community spaces, offices and a gymnasium, and the other wing features 26 classrooms. The design drastically increases the amount of natural light over the previous building, including vaulted ceilings and a library/media center with floor-to-ceiling glass. The building design is flexible and adaptable, including a common area that serves as the cafeteria and has a stage for presentations in addition to outdoor learning experiences through outdoor patios adjacent to the classrooms. Two parking lots serve the building with separate pickup and drop-off spaces to improve circulation and safety on site and reduce conflict with the adjacent neighborhood streets. The resulting school will feel less like an institution and more like a home.

Multifamily moves ahead at full speed
Apartments will dominate the local building landscape in 2020-2021
Nothing is normal about 2020. The construction market suffered setbacks with shutdowns in March and April, and continues to see slowed deliveries of furnishings, supplies and household appliances due to the pandemic, recession, tariffs and high demand. Commercial construction and real estate has been hit hard.
At the same time, we saw record submissions again this year to our Top Projects Magazine and Awards, and the top trend for building is in multifamily dwellings.
The Columbia at the Waterfront is the largest multi-family project on the list this year. Pence Construction broke ground on the 248-unit apartment building developed by Blue Pine Construction in partnership with Jackson Square Properties in October.
The Columbia will occupy a little over one acre in the west end of the Vancouver Waterfront Development, and is immediately adjacent to the Vancouver Waterfront Park, providing views of the Columbia River on two sides. The seven-story structure will be a mix of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, and will not have a ground floor retail component. The second floor features an open deck with a pavilion and pool. The upper floors feature a U-shaped tower, providing all units with an exterior view. Two levels of below ground parking contain approximately 250 parking spaces.
So far this year, permits have been pulled in the City of Vancouver for 545 units of new multifamily residential dwellings for a total value of $89,922,569. Despite the restrictions around COVID-19, and the market recession, multifamily is on track to meet or exceed last year’s numbers, 580 units in development by July and 1,046 for the year. By comparison, so far this year, 54 commercial permits have been filed and 226 commercial tenant improvement permits have been pulled, coming in at a third of last year’s numbers through June (72) and 293 over all.
Vancouver-based IDM Companies continues to develop large apartment complexes in Southwest Washington, taking advantage of the unabated population explosion in Clark County. Currently maintaining 12 active properties in Southwest Washington, two of the largest multifamily complexes on our list are both IDM, Acero Jensen Park and Acero Haagen Park, both in Vancouver. Acero Jensen Park is 288 units and is valued by the developer at $54 million. It is situated off of St. John’s Boulevard in a traditionally industrial part of Vancouver. The Haagen property comes in at 261 units for a total project value of $50 million and is situated at the north end of the popular 136th commercial and community corridor in Cascade Park near the LeRoy Haagen Memorial Community Park.
Cascade Development Partners is adding much needed density to the downtown core. Set to open in February 2021, The Aria is a multifamily development featuring 122 market rent units and five ground floor townhouses. The development spans six floors and 36,500 square feet. According to the CDP’s website, the project will provide 125 on-site, structured parking stalls over two levels, and amenities include a 6,000-square-foot courtyard and a fully landscaped mews (lane) between the apartment building and the Esther Short office building to the east, also owned by Cascadia Development Partners. Units will consist of a mix of two bedrooms/two baths, one bedroom and study/one bath, one bedroom/one bath and studio dwelling units. The development is immediately adjacent to Esther Short Park, the new City Hall, Vancouver Farmers Market, and just blocks from the Columbia Waterfront and Terminal One.
Elwood Apartments is a 46-unit affordable housing community in a total of four three-story buildings along the Fourth Plain Corridor. The Elwood Affordable Housing Community is owned by the Housing Initiative, which was established as a subsidiary of the Council for the Homeless in 2016. Of the units, 50% will be designated for homeless people with complex physical and behavioral health needs. Auxiliary services will include central laundry, a community room, as well as open green space and a community garden. According to OTAK, a local planning company that was retained to complete the site surveys and civil engineering design, and obtain land-use and site engineering approvals/permits, the project will also meet the minimum requirements of the Evergreen Sustainable Development Standards which includes requirements for low-VOCs, water conservation, air sealing, and reduced thermal bridging. Former Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt, P.E., is leading Otak’s Vancouver office in navigating the project. The project architect is Access Architecture. MAJ Development, which develops primarily commercial/retail projects, and residential subdivision developer Ginn Group both broke ground on two large multi-family projects in 2019. MAJ Development’s Autumn Grove and Haven Hills add 316 units to Vancouver, with Haven Hills in Salmon Creek located adjacent to the Washington State University Vancouver campus. Autumn Grove adds 148 one- and two-bedroom apartments on 5.77 acres to the Vancouver Mall neighborhood.
From the Ginn Group, Four Seasons Apartments II and Minnehaha Meadows are adding a total of 141 units to Vancouver’s landscape. TEAM Construction is currently finishing the construction of the $1.8 million Clara Court Apartments in Vancouver’s Sifton Neighborhood.

Ridgefield Colonial luxury meets responsible living in the rugged, yet elegant, Brazadian. This eclectic four-bedroom custom home features 4,500 square feet of one-level living – including a grand foyer, two bedrooms, a parlor and an office – and 1,500 square feet of upper level living space, with two bedrooms and bonus room situated above an oversized four-car garage. Outside is 1,600 square feet of open-air living space, 300 of which is covered, intertwined with native, edible vegetation. The entire main level of the home is nestled in earthen geo-thermal heated floors, crowned by an exquisite array of European tile. The Brazadian makes use of 24-foot ceilings throughout the main living area giving it an air of grandiosity, with an indoor timber trellis that extends into the outdoor living space. The homes’ doors are either custom built or reused, including custom shutters using salvaged St. Paul Rodeo chutes, and master bedroom doors reclaimed from a vintage apartment in Philadelphia. Organic hand-plastered walls can be seen in most rooms in the home and feature elegant stenciled designs, bringing back a colonial flavor that’s especially notable in the home’s parlor. Special attention was placed on the home’s energy envelope and air handling systems. Its energy needs are completely met by a solar panel bank partnered with three Tesla batteries, giving it a Net Zero/off-the-grid designation.

Ridgefield Inspired by Doriot Construction’s love for Northwest contemporary architecture, this beautiful 3000-square-foot single story residence was built as our client’s “forever home.” Traditional hand hewn distressed timber frame structural components grace the entry, family room and multiple outdoor living areas. Our team collaborated with Gary Waldal of Design NorthWest to take our client’s vision from dream to reality. The building site presented the challenge of a significant slope that was contrary to the zero step home and landscape our homeowners wanted to create. Our solution was extensive retaining walls surrounding three sides of the lot with engineered fill and drainage to create a substantially flat lot. The project was designed with zero steps in the home as well as the project’s contiguous hardscape. Soaring ceilings in the great room feature painted decking and rough cut timbers. The expansive entertainer’s kitchen by Dewils Industries features every possible design convenience. The kitchen is adorned with upscale stainless steel appliances highlighted by multilevel accent lighting. The master bedroom is paneled and boasts a large roll-in shower as well as a free standing soaking tub. The sand finished sidewalks provide sheltered access to the entire perimeter of the home’s expansive footprint including multiple outdoor living areas oriented to take advantage of Parkland’s beautiful green belt areas. The project includes epoxy garage floors, cedar garage doors, natural gas appliances to include a 14 KW stand alone whole house generator. The landscaping by GroOutdoor Living features stacked boulder walls with low maintenance plants and an astroturf lawn surrounding the entire project.
